Saturday Snapshot --

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
This month, I'm also participating in Paris in July sponsored byThyme for Tea and Bookbath, so, of course, I need a France related photo.
Last Saturday, I posted a photo of the kids with us in France at ages 2, 4 and 6. This week, I'll jump forward to the trip we took with them at ages 10, 12 and 14.

The challenges were different this time, but still pretty tiring. Again we created some great memories.
Here we are in front of the Arc de Triomphe with Grace already towering over me. She chastises me now for letting her traipse through Europe looking awkward and 14.


Tucker, age 10, tried to reach up and give his dad bunny ears in every photo. Now, 6 years, later, he could easily give his dad bunny ears. This was, of course, in front of the pyramid at the Louvre.
We took a ride on the Bateaux Mouches at night so we snapped a shot of the Eiffel Tower lit up behind the kids.

I hope someday, when the kids are all adults we can go together again.

My son always use to make goofy faces when he was little in photos and even tries it now at 34:)

These were great photos of your family in Paris -- great memories.

Yes, those bunny ears have appeared in many of our pix over the years. You're making great memories with those fabulous photos.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and yes, my "subjects" do ponder strange things...lol

Thanks for sharing photos of your lovely family. They are an admirable bunch all three of them. These are certainly precious keepsakes. I'm sure they treasure them too and than their parents when they grow up.

I LOVE these pictures, Paulita. I especially love Grace's point of view. How could you Mom?! LOL!
I didn't do a Saturday Snapshot but I did post the Les Miserables trailer in honor of Bastille Day.

Great shots of the kids, they always look awkward at certain ages don't they. How wonderful to have had multiple family holidays to France!
